2019 Architecture Awards

39 2019 Architecture Awards BUILD May19102 rom the initial contact through to the project’s completion, HWO Architects strive to delivers great places to live and unlock the development potential of a variety of sites. Collaborating with clients who range from housebuilders, local authorities and housing associations through to private landowners and developers, the firm strives to cultivate a reputation for excellence in creating residential and mixed-use properties throughout London. When working on any new project, HWO Architects works hard to ensure that, from the very beginning, every aspect is planned out so that clients know what they are receiving and that their property will meet their needs. The firm’s team firmly believes that a robust planning design is key to the success of a project. When implementing this strategy, the team works to both maximizing the capacity of a site and allowing for the reality of the build scheme early on, a focus often overlooked by smaller developers. As part of this focus on planning every aspect of its projects, the firm utilises technology to ensure efficiency. HWO Architects use the 3D BIM platform Revit from inception all the way to technical drawings. Visualizing the proposals in 3D right from the start gives the firm competitive advantage, and the software’s capacity to generate construction drawings, schedules and coordinate the different disciplines is second to none, allowing the practice the chance to plan and visualise projects in a way few others firms can. HWO Architects: Best Mixed-Use Architecture Firm – London & Best Residential Mixed-Use Project (East London): Old Smokehouse Driven by a vision of a better London, HWO Architects works tirelessly to create unique buildings that will enhance the capital city and life for everyone living in it. Having recognised the firm twice in this year’s Architecture Awards we profile it and share an insight into its work. F Overall, the future looks bright for HWO Architects. Although there will be a lot of uncertainty until the end of 2019, and probably for another couple of years as the market adopts a wait and see approach to Brexit and other challenges it faces, the firm believes that housing associations, and anyone backed by a strong rental income, will be better placed than residential developers to buy future development sites, driving even more work for the team in the future. HWO Architects will rise to the challenge and work with its clients, both existing and future, to create spaces that will enhance the capital’s built landscape and benefit its population.
